Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936).  Verse: 1885–1918.  1922.
 
Mother o’ Mine
 
IF I were hanged on the highest hill,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
I know whose love would follow me still,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
 
If I were drowned in the deepest sea,        5
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
I know whose tears would come down to me,
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
 
If I were damned of body and soul,
I know whose prayers would make me whole,        10
Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
